Mondo’s Gremlins Soundtrack Artwork Reacts to Sunlight & Water

Published

on

When it comes to horror-flavored Christmas movies, there are few titles more beloved than Joe Dante’s 1984 classic Gremlins. Starring 80’s favorites like Zach Galligan and Phoebe Cates, Gremlins introduced the titular delightfully murderous creatures to pop culture, along with the sweet little mogwai named Gizmo that they spawn off from.

As any Gremlins fan knows by heart, mogwai come with three rules: don’t expose them to sunlight, don’t get them wet, and don’t feed them after midnight. While countless jokes have since been made regarding which time zone that last rule applies to, the first two rules are pretty clear, especially since direct or prolonged exposure to sunlight can kill both mogwai and gremlins. When rule two is  broken, the mogwai spawn sinister little offspring, and when those offspring then are fed after midnight, full-on gremlins are created.

Mondo is soon to delight Gremlins devotees with their vinyl two-LP release of the original film’s soundtrack, which hits shelves November 30th. As has become one of the company’s trademarks, Mondo has gone all out with its packaging for the release, which – as first revealed by EW – features two awesome interactive features. First, when the LP’s gatefold jacket is exposed to sunlight – or any other UV light – hidden messages are revealed around the villainous Stripe, who graces the jacket’s normal artwork.

Secondly, each of the LP sleeves reacts to water, revealing additional artwork around the main image. Since water causes mogwai to spawn, it makes perfect sense that wetness would cause the sleeve artwork to create more of itself as well. Obviously, one should only do this with a damp cloth. Anyone who opts to take the packaging into the shower with them is on their own. Check out the before and after images below, first of the jacket and then of the sleeves.

‘Final Destination 6’ Coming to HBO Max From ‘Freaks’ Filmmakers

Published

Final

Freaks filmmakers, Zach Lipovsky and Adam B. Stein have been brought on board to direct an upcoming Final Destination 6 for HBO Max. Jon Watts is on as producer with Lori Evans and Guy Buswick as writers.

“I will say that it’s not just going to be another kind of ‘we set up a group of people, they cheat death, and then just death gets them.’ And there’s one wrinkle that we kind of added to every movie to kind of like change it up a little bit: this one is… a true Final Destination movie, but it doesn’t follow that kind of formula that we’ve kind of established.” Jeffrey Reddick told Dread Central.

The synopsis for the first Final Destination went like this:

Alex Browning (Devon Sawa), is embarking on a trip to Paris. Alex experiences a premonition — he sees the plane explode moments after leaving the ground. Alex insists that everyone get off the plane and 7 people including Alex, are forced to disembark. All watch as the plane actually explodes in a fireball. He and the other survivors have briefly cheated death, but will not be able to evade their fate for very long. One by one, these fugitives from fate fall victim to the grim reaper.

We will keep you updated on all things Final Destination.

As part of the TUDUM: A Global Fan Event releases, Netflix has given Stranger Things fans a nice little treat. I’m a huge fan of behind-the-scenes and blooper reels! I loved seeing the characters we know so well break the 4th wall when overwhelmed with a case of the giggles. Even the powerful Vecna couldn’t escape landing on the Stranger Things season 4 blooper reel!

Watch our favorite actors break character in this brand new blooper reel below. 🤣

We also found some other behind-the-scenes videos from Stranger Things Season 4 that we thought you would like. With the news of Stranger Things Season 5 being the end of the series, we’re watching all these videos before we have to say our final goodbye. I don’t think we’re ready for this story to end. 😭 Until then, have a laugh with our friends from Hawkins, Indiana!

‘Cloverfield’ Film Finds a Director To Helm Next Entry

Published

Cloverfield

We have seen an incredible three Cloverfield-based films so far. The latest being Cloverfield Paradox on Netflix. The latest in the series also managed to lose steam for the secretive franchise. It went too far into the explanation of secrets that we had seen in the first two films. Once the wizard is discovered behind the curtain the game loses its momentum and fun. The upcoming Cloverfield film has found its director from Under the Shadow’s Babak Anvari.

The director’s Under the Shadow was a great piece of horror. It was entirely effective in its scares and story.

There is no word on where the fourth Cloverfield film will take audiences. But, that is for the best. These films have always been shrouded in secrecy and that is what has made them fun. Well… the first two films anyway.

The synopsis for Cloverfield went like this:

As a group of New Yorkers (Michael Stahl-David, Mike Vogel, Odette Yustman) enjoy a going-away party, little do they know that they will soon face the most terrifying night of their lives. A creature the size of a skyscraper descends upon the city, leaving death and destruction in its wake. Using a handheld video camera, the friends record their struggle to survive as New York crumbles around them.

We are happy to see that Anvari is going to helm this entry. We can’t wait to see what he brings to the franchise and to see what direction this entry takes.

What has been your favorite Cloverfield chapter?
